They were allocated into 2 groups and treated with ultrasound (US), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) exercises, MWM for 5 sessions in a week for 4 weeks. Daily assessment was done, pre and post intervention outcomes were measured using Goniometry and Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) Result Both the groups showed improvement but there was significant improvement on SPADI Scale and ROM in group treated with MWM, US, TENS and exercises.
